Jaw clenching / bashing teeth

Recommended Posts

Since getting HPPD I have woken up countless mornings to discover new chips in my teeth from bashing them together in my sleep. I also clench my jaw during the day a lot as a kind of coping mechanism. Anyone else have this problem? Think it is linked to stress and anxiety. Not sure what to do about it as I don't want to end up destroying all my teeth.

I've ground my teeth at night my whole adult life.  I dont know if it's caused by hppd because I've had that my whole adult life as well.  It was much worse the years I was drinking.  Get fitted for a mouth guard and wear it every night.  It'll help you keep your teeth.
